Liverpool’s place in the Carabao Cup is reportedly under threat after they apparently fielded an ineligible player in against MK Dons.
The Athletic claims Jurgen Klopp’s side are being investigated by the EFL in the wake of Wednesday’s 2-0 third-round win.
It’s said that Liverpool may have fielded a player who did not comply with the competition’s registration criteria.
A Reds spokesman confirmed: “The club are aware of a potential administrative issue pertaining to one of our players.
“We are working with the relevant authorities in order to establish the facts of the matter and will be making no further comment until this process is complete.”
